The 4 Phases
Phase 1 are the first 2 days that we call the loading days.
Phase 2 is the 700 calorie a day plan.
Phase 3 is the next 21 days, starting at 800 cal. & gradually working up to no more than 1500 cal. a day, eating the same foods as in Phase 2 but in larger portions and adding a few more proteins such as almonds, you can also bring dairy into your diet a little at a time.
Phase 4 is a maintenance plan for life, you can start eating more calories, introducing whole wheat breads, pastas, rice and other foods back into your menu.
